About Us

Established on September 27, 1983, by the visionary Alhaji Lateef Kayode Jakande, General Hospital, Gbagada (GBGH), stands as a testament to his foresight during the vibrant era of the Second Republic. Nestled strategically at the crossroads of three major expressways—Victoria Island via the 3rd Mainland Bridge, Lagos–Ibadan Expressway, and Badagry/Apapa Oshodi Expressway—GBGH serves as a beacon of healthcare accessibility across the vast expanse of Lagos State.

With thirty-five specialized departments, including a cutting-edge Burns and Trauma tertiary center under the vigilant oversight of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), a robust maternal and pediatric unit, and a pioneering Cardio Renal Centre forged through Public Private Partnership (PPP), GBGH stands at the forefront of medical innovation within its sprawling 11.3-hectare premises.

Guiding the helm of this medical juggernaut is the esteemed Dr. BABAFEMI.J.O, supported by a dynamic Health Management Committee and a cadre of dedicated healthcare professionals comprising skilled doctors, compassionate nurses, proficient pharmacists, and diligent support and administration staff.

GBGH prides itself not only on its medical prowess but also on its commitment to visitor comfort and convenience. Ample parking spaces and uninterrupted 24-hour power supply ensure a seamless experience for patients and visitors alike. Moreover, an array of on-site shops caters to the diverse needs of those traversing its halls.

In acknowledgment of the importance of sanitation and hygiene, GBGH offers meticulously maintained public toilets, strategically positioned for easy accessibility, supplementing the restroom facilities within each department.

Furthermore, GBGH is home to one of the state’s premier mortuary services, privately operated to uphold the highest standards of dignity and respect for the departed and their bereaved families.
